Miss Jessie's Baby Buttercreme

Dec 17, 2010 - I have a love hate relationship with this product (and Miss Jessie's as a company). I HATE that "kinks to curls" motto they use...it just irks me. I feel like they are trying to "sell" the dream of good hair..and the false promoise that using thier expensive products will give you that. That being said, I've used this product and while the price point is outragious, the product is ok. When its really cold here (I'm talking below zero wind chills) then I use this. All the mineral oil, bees wax and linolin coat my hair and protect it from the harsh weather. The draw back is that you MUST wash this stuff out with a sulfate shampoo. It builds up rather quickly and while it's marketed as a "moisturizer" the moisturizing effects are only temperary. Just one glance at the ingredients will show that most are things that will sit on your hair and clog it up over time. So, if you goal is to sort of "seal" up your hair from the harsh winter elements, then this is a good product. But if you are just in the market for a good moisturizer, skip this. There are much better (and cheaper) products out there.

Qhemet Biologics Honeybush Hair Tea Soft Hold Gel

Dec 17, 2010 - While I love this gel, it can be very tempermental to use. I only use it in the winter time when its not humid outside. In the summer when it's humid, it tends to encourage frizz and poofyness. In the wintertime with the Alma and Olive Heavy Cream, it is a DREAM product. I'm left with soft, touchable curls that don't dry out and last for days...which is good because I'm NOT a fan of washing my hair and going outside when its 20 degrees.
